Episode Quotes
Coulson: Imagine what she'll do with our resources.
Grant: I am. That's exactly what I'm imagining during this frown.

Grant: We've been called in to investigate an 0-8-4. We all know what that means.
Coulson: Yes, we do. It means we don't know what that means.

Coulson: That's where the 0-8-4 was reported.
Skye: And an 0-8-4 is…?
Coulson: An object of unknown origin. Kind of like you. Team goes in, determines if it's useful or if it poses a threat. Last one turned out to be pretty interesting.
Skye: And what was the last one?
Coulson: A hammer.

Coulson: Do you need anything else before I go check on the device fueled by evil that's sitting in our cargo hold? (Melinda ignores him) This was fun.

Fitz: Are you mental? I did explain what I meant using the Queen's bloody English!
Grant: I use normal English. Words like "duck" and "run" and "might blow us to pieces."
Fitz: Oh. Oh!. Well, congratulations, Agent Ward. you managed to string three words together in a sentence.

Camilla Reyes: Oh, Phil. You're not even aware. Your renewed idealism, your collectibles, your airborne man cave, surrounding yourself with young, attractive agents—you're having a mid-life crisis.
Coulson: More of an afterlife thing, really.
Camilla Reyes: And I'm not even going to mention the red Corvette.
Coulson: Her name is Lola.
Camilla Reyes: Of course it is.

Skye: Not a scratch. But your plane's totaled. I hope S.H.I.E.L.D. insurance covers hijackings.
Coulson: Sure. Under "Incidentals."

Cultural References
Skye: Hunger Games?

The Hunger Games is a 2008 novel by Suzanne Collins set in a post-apocalyptic future where teenagers are sent to fight in gladiatorial "Hunger Games" as a means of keeping their twelve districts intimidated by The Capital, the ruling district.
